Macquarie University Vacation Care provides a recreational program for primary school aged children during the school holidays.
The program caters for children who are enrolled and attending primary school. Children will need to bring a hat, a packed lunch and morning tea. Afternoon tea is supplied daily.
Children also need to wear suitable clothing for the programmed activities.
